To me, newborns are the most precious and this makes their first photo a priceless experience! When you have a new baby you want to take as many photographs as possible to capture those first few weeks and months. The saying that they don’t stay babies for long is certainly true and it is soon easy to forget just how small they were when they were firstborn. Having your newborn photographed professionally can help you keep these precious memories. Although you are sure to be taking a lot of photographs of a baby yourself, there is still a lot to be said for hiring a professional. They will have the expertise that is needed to make sure that you get some really good shots. They will also be using professional equipment that you may not have access to yourself and will have a range of props that can be used to create some really cute pictures. A good photographer will be able to provide you with examples of their previous work so that you can get an idea of what you can expect from your photos. These may also give you some inspiration about the different poses that you may want to try for your baby. A wide range of different packages are usually on offer from a professional photographer and these can include additional photographs that you will be able to share with your family and friends. If you speak to the photographer what you have in mind they will be able to recommend ideas on printing methods. Keep memories alive!
